Choosing, cutting, pretty plants…..

I’m up to 100 pc. cut and 4 more candidates waiting until this morning.
I decided to start building a colorwash out of what I already have cut and that will help me decide what needs to be cut next.  There are lots more needed between the blue and purple.  I could just cut 200 random pieces and hope they work but I would rather have 200 that have a pretty good chance as a starter kit.  I will pull rust, brown, and red today as well as looking for fill in pieces where I see gaps.
My neighbor and I decided I have a Philip Jacobs coleus.  If you aren’t familiar with his fabric you could go to this site and see a few of them.
This is the whole plant in one of my mirror image pots that go in front of my garage.  This one was left in the sun more days and the other was dragged into the garage on the hottest days.
This is the one that took shelter in the garage and didn’t suffer in the heat as much. They looked alike at the beginning of the season.

  1. You do indeed have that fabric, a wonder the plants have survived in your heat. Almost too hot to do anything near fabric, the new colourwash looks super . Cheers, Jean.

  2. I agree your coleus does look like some of Philip Jacobs fabrics.Are you going to slip in a photo, in the colorwash kits so we have something to go by ? (*._,*)J~MT

  3. Beautiful coleus but it is amazing how the sun is burning so many plants! My gosh Wanda, what a lot of work you are doing on the colorwash kits! Looking beautiful!

  4. They DO look rather Philip Jacobs-ish, don't they! His fabrics are some of my favorites. Your colorwash selections are going together very well so far. That is going to be a really nice kit.

  5. I see from the last few posts that you have been very busy cutting quilt kits. Where or where do you get all your energy? I wish we would get a nice day of rain so I wouldn't have to water for a couple of days. Will it ever come?
